route_to matcher

The route_to matcher specifies that a request (verb + path) is routable.
It is most valuable when specifying routes other than standard RESTful
routes.

expect(get("/")).to route_to("welcome#index") # new in 2.6.0

or

expect(:get => "/").to route_to(:controller => "welcome")
Scenarios

  it "routes /widgets to the widgets controller" do
    expect(get("/widgets")).
      to route_to("widgets#index")
  end
